Twinkle My Toes
This rug measures 34" from point to point and takes three sheets to complete. The third or last color will take a large sheet. You'll need matching thread and a Q hook. Check...how to prepare fabric in the recycling section.
Tear the fabric into 2" strips.
To crochet a larger rug, increase at each point by 2 sts or 10 sts per row.
NOTES: 1. As you crochet, gently pull the rug into a star design.
2. This pattern needs a large safety pin put in middle 2 dc sts. It will remind you where the point is and you want have to stop and count to make sure it's right. I still stop and count occasionally to be absolutely sure I'm correct.
3. Create a rhythm as you crochet. It will make it easier to proceed and quicker to complete.
I crocheted in the back loop, but you can us both loops if you like.

The rug I made is 17 rows.
To add a row, add 2 sts to each point. Add a sc before crocheting a hdc, dc 2, dc 2, hdc; add another sc. If you make you're rug larger, you'll need more fabric.
Weave in loose fabric. Trim.
About Myself......I'm a retiree, who always thought retiring meant laying in a recliner reading the days away. NO WAY! I'm busier now than I've ever been and ever so-o-o HAPPY. I live in Batesville, Arkansas, a small town in the USA, along the White River.
The town is steeped in history, art, artist, writers and interesting people who represent all forms of life, art and entertainment. A must see when visiting out town is the Old Independence Regional Museum. It's housed us a 1936 WPA constructed building on the National Register of Historic Places. It preserves the history of 12 counties that comprised Independence County in 1820. It' located at 380 South Ninth Street.
Now, as you know where I live, I'll tell you what I do....I walk most every day, for my health and crochet, work on art projects and recycle or renew discarded items into pretty and usable pieces of Folk Art or that is what I call it. It's S--o-o-o much FUN! So-o-o, why don't you come along and enjoy it with me. If you have any suggestions or ideas, let me know and, together, we can share them with other readers.
You might want to join one of my favorite groups...it's FREE and very informative.....
International Freeform Fiberarts Guild
This group exists to share our love for free form style, to discuss stitches, ideas, new projects, techniques, mediums and more. International members welcomes.
A second group.....Crochet Guild of America

In the photo, you can see Polly Ann is asleep standing up! To understand, I must tell you, she loves to climb. So, as I was cleaning and replacing a group of books when realized I had help, Polly Ann. I decided to take a coffee break and leave her to it. She started her climb. She got to the top of a group of books when, the top book slipped and one end ended on the floor. Evidently, she was tired after she'd slide to the floor. Polly Ann went to sleep. She slept the rest of the afternoon and night on the book standing up.
Yes, I walk with Polly Ann EVERY morning.
